Product Description

Follow the lives and ideas of our Founding Fathers from the Revolutionary War until the beginning of the Civil War. America has a tradition steeped both in religous liberty and a distinctly Christian beginning where the choice of religion was only between denominations. This relationship between church and state, people and government is here explored, following the the ever-morphing trail of ideas, communities, daily life and the American people. 196 pages, indexed.

Publisher's Description

In the lauded Faith of the Founders, revered historianEdwin Gaustad provides a careful consideration of the developing relationship between religion and the state after the American Revolution. With concise focus on Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and John Adams, Gaustad identifies seven varying--sometimes contrary--perspectives on religion that guided the nation's founders. Faith of the Founders masterfully shows how these figures possessed an intuitive understanding of religion that helped nourish a young country. Repackaged for a new generation of readers and with a new foreword by Randall Balmer, this brief but insightful book offers a look into the founding fathers' genius--and points to a way forward through the ideological boundaries that threaten to upend the daily doings of American government today.
